Cotham and Redland Green Learning Communities

Rotary Youth Leadership Award

Fatima Hudoon, Year 13, at the Cotham Learning Community took part in the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) course last summer. There were forty young students from across the city that attended the RYLA residential week. Fatima was chosen to give a presentation to the Rotary Club about her experience. Read about her experience below:

My RYLA experience

My experience at RYLA has truly been inspirational and worthwhile. I have not only made some amazing friends but also have learned the importance of self-confidence and communication. Leadership being the central focus of the program has helped me pick up skills that will help me become a better leader and transfer the skills learned during the program at school and hopefully at university. My public speaking has rapidly improved during and after RYLA, as well given me self-confidence. I absolutely recommend this program to future students; it has been an experience that I’ll never forget. It is a place to learn about yourself, make new friends and of course have fun; to actually know what it’s like to participate in RYLA, one has to experience it oneself because the experience has just been indescribable!
